Cinema 1 is like an old fashioned cinema, the decor is beautiful. Comfortable seats, one of my favourite places in Glasgow.

I'm always excited when visiting the GFT. Watching a movie there always adds so much more to the experience. You are not bombarded with overpriced popcorn, drinks & junk food when you come into this movie theatre. There is a pleasant cafe so sustenance is not neglected. The staff are always friendly and the choice of movies is what one... More

I have been going to GFT for a couple of years, especially enjoying their various festivals during the year. (French Film Festival - Japanese Animation Festival) ... The cinema has recently been renovated but hasn't lost any of its charm. A great place overall !

My first trip here since 1973! The GFT has always had a reputation for being a bit arty, and possibly with ageing, this doesn't seem so alien now. The cinema is certainly not the usual multiplex, and it is good to see the independent can still hold its own. Staff are friendly, and the seats were comfortable. Saw Leviathan this... More

A proper cinema theatre, how they're meant to be. Worth a trip to see a film when you're in Glasgow. Staff all very helpful and friendly. Cute and Classic theatre. Any film fan will be in their element.

A lovely movie theatre located in central Glasgow. They play both main stream and artsy/foreign movies. Great place to catch a movie and skip the masses of people. Comfortable and reasonably priced. Cafe and bar on premises also provides snacks and friendly service.

I really love the intimate feeling you get with smaller cinemas like the GFT. I much prefer to visit these types rather than the larger mainstream cinemas (so hipster, right?). But I feel that they are a lot more comfortable and have a great feeling about them. I haven't visited in a while and can't wait to go back!
